My very best childhood friend, Holly Darr, or as we affectionately called her, Holly-da, is responsible for sharing this recipe with me. We rolled out these cookies together in middle school, and my family made them for many years following. I continued the tradition with my own children for the last 20 years. Thank you Holly-da!
So in my last post, I got all excited about some fancy decorating options. Because Pinterest. Some days I love Pinterest, some days it overwhelms me. I am just a normal human. I don’t have time to professionally decorate Valentine cookies. I mean, seriously. I did muster up the energy to make the standard cookies I am comfortable with, but I hope they are not a major disappointment.
I mean they are pretty enough, right? And who cares anyway… they are delicious. And this isn’t a competition.
*Roll out on wax paper or flour. Use flour on rolling pin also, and move quickly. As the dough gets warmer, it gets sticky!
